What is cardboard?

Cardboard is heavy-duty paper commonly used as packing material. Cardboard has been available since the 15th century and was used in China. Cardboard can be in single-layer sheets, but it’s commonly in different corrugated forms with flat surfaces around the s-shaped flutes.  

Paper and cardboard are 100% recyclable. Cardboard can quickly accumulate, and instead of disposing of it yourself or waiting for a pick-up from your local council, you can contact our team for fast, sustainable and efficient cardboard disposal.

Cardboard recycling

More businesses are becoming more environmentally aware than in the last decade. Business managers now understand the importance of recycling and are adopting practices to engage in recycling.

Recycling has become more common and good for businesses to adhere to legislation, attract customers and preserve the environment through waste reduction.

Why is cardboard recycling easy?

Cardboard is easy to recycle because the fibres used to make it have already undergone processing from trees.

Why can I not burn cardboard?

Burning waste can only be a good alternative if the waste produces efficient fuel. However, cardboard doesn’t produce efficient fuel but releases gases and contaminants into the environment.

Local authorities have regulations for smokeless fuel, and burning cardboard doesn’t meet these regulations. If you burn cardboard waste instead of recycling it, you are wasting a reusable resource.

How does cardboard recycling benefit my business?

Recycling material isn’t the easiest solution as it involves staff training, space and commercial recycling costs. Cardboard is one of the easiest materials to pack, store and recycle.

The benefits of cardboard recycling include meeting legal obligations, protecting the environment and protecting the business reputation.

How can I maximise the value of cardboard waste?

People with regular volumes of cardboard waste measured in tonnes can get a rebate or benefit from a free collection.

Cardboard is a global material whose price is subject to large fluctuations. In 2020, the cost of cardboard recycling was between £65 - £105 per tonne. If you want to sell your cardboard, ensure the load is free from contaminants such as liquid, food, Styrofoam-type packaging and grease.  

An effective way of storing cardboard for recycling is using bales. This ensures maximum financial return because the cardboard will be in the format required at the recycling centre. You can use a mechanical baler.

You can get low-cost or free collections if you have smaller amounts of cardboard and need regular collections.

Can I mix different cardboard grades for recycling?

You can recycle different grades of cardboard together if the load is dry and not contaminated with chemicals, food or grease. Some cardboards coated with wax are not recyclable but biodegradable.

Can I mix cardboard with paper for recycling?

Generally, corrugated cardboard recycling is separate from the paper, but you can mix paper with thinner cardboard for recycling.

Are pizza boxes recyclable?

Pizza boxes often have recycling symbols and are made with corrugated cardboard, so they are recyclable. However, you can’t recycle pizza boxes tainted with food or grease because they contaminate the load and make it useless.

Are Tetra Paks recyclable?

Tetra Paks are cartons coated with plastic. These cartons are commonly used for packaging juices and milk. Although they are made of 80% paper, they contain plastic and small metal traces. Tetra Paks aren’t recyclable with corrugated cardboard loads or normal single sheets. However, more Tetra Pak recycling facilities are opening in the UK.

What do I need to do before cardboard recycling?

Before recycling cardboard, the first thing to do is to ensure the cardboard load is dry and clean. Set any contaminated items aside because they aren’t recyclable. The next step is removing any excess tape from the cardboard, but you don’t need to remove all the tape.

Ensure the cardboard is packed as flat as possible and stored in a container that keeps it dry. You can store large amounts of cardboard in a baler like the Mill Size baler, roll-off bins and specific-lidded containers.

What will I do if I have large amounts of cardboard for recycling?

If you’ve accumulated large amounts of cardboard for recycling, you can take it to the local recycling facility. Alternatively, you can contact a specialised waste management company like Waste Removal Haringey, especially if you have a business that produces large amounts of cardboard waste.

Cardboard disposal

  • What happens while recycling cardboard?

The professionals at the recycling facility will first sort the loads into corrugated boards and flat sheets or boxboards. Recycling paper with cardboard is possible but keeping the grades separate is necessary because they form different products after recycling.  

Shredding the cardboard into small pieces is the next step before mixing it in chemicals and water to form a slurry mixture. The pulp gets mixed with small amounts of new pulp made with wood chips.

The mixture undergoes a series of filtering, centrifugal and chemical processes to remove the plastics, ink, metal and tape. The clean pulp is dried and pressed to make long sheets glued together to form new cardboard.

Cardboard is a useful material with many applications, such as different packaging. Cardboard recycling is important, and with many new products containing recycled fibres, cardboard is set to become the most recycled material.

Bins for cardboard recycling

Cardboard accounts for a huge amount of waste businesses produce and takes up a lot of space. Many businesses throw away their cardboard because they do not have space to store large amounts of cardboard.

Cardboard recycling is easy, safe and a good way to manage your business’s resources, which makes cardboard recycling important.

To make your cardboard recycling easy, you can contact Waste Removal Haringey to book low-cost cardboard recycling bins daily, weekly or monthly.

You can get different sizes of waste bins for cardboard, including:

  • 1100L cardboard bin
  • 660L cardboard bin
  • 360L cardboard bin
  • 240L cardboard bin

Larger options are also available, like the front and rear end loaders, compactors and balers, roll-on roll-off and cardboard skips. We can help you choose the right cardboard disposal bin size for your business.

  • Benefits of cardboard recycling

You can call us to arrange recycling bins and collection services to meet the needs of your business. We are available to collect your cardboard waste from any location in Haringey.

Cardboard and paper recycling
